LOL, We're also starting our vacation on 5/17, 7 nights at BCV, then 2 nights at AKV cause BC was booked.

But we've never tried AKV and I think it will be great to explore the resort when we're a bit theme parked out!

Congrats on paying your trip off! Have a great vacation!

We will hopefully find ourselves owning a little piece of BCV pretty soon!.

I know I've already said it on your TR but I'll say it again-really hope it all works out for you

I was wondering if someone could let me know some differences between the two resorts and their club levels.

Thanks!!


Would you like to be added to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1? What are the dates of your trip?

I see you got one response, below. Pixarmom has stayed at both BWI CL and Beach Club CL (I don't think her YC stay was CL)- I know she is busy with a school project this weekend, but if she sees this post, I'm sure she will give her input.

If that make sense. They are both really great resorts. I will go with whatever one I can get with a discount. I would choose either one over the BC. The lobby is too chaotic for me.


Thanks for providing this info.

Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!
Oh please, oh please, let this be true!!!! it would make a big difference in my DH's attitude toward this trip.

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

With our upcoming...no one saw it coming....Yacht Club stay, I have to ask the inevitable question. (God, I hate even asking it)....We have a garden view booked and we of course want to know where the best GV rooms are, and what kind of room request we should make. Daybeds aren't important since there's 2 of us, and I believe we're promised a balcony at YC, so I guess being close to the lobby is what's most important. We like being close to the action.

So, Thoughts?

I would be shocked if the April 2 discount doesn't come to fruition. The original poster is a CM and was dead-on with the last discount promotion. Good luck to all who need it! Sending pixie dust that everyone gets exactly what they want!

I'm getting excited for our July trip.....we just purchased our park tickets. Saved $400 by purchasing Y.E.S. tickets instead of thru Undercover Tourist. I was even able to get my husband to agree to take the kids to the Y.E.S. class the kids are taking, which means I'll have about 4 hours to myself at WDW!!!! I think I'm more excited about having time to myself over saving $400!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I have stayed CL at all 3 and agree with Ofinn on all of the above.

BWI really is a pretty resort, but the CL area being away from the elevator bothered me But the BWI CL staff is top notch and that lounge never seemed to be crowded.

YC lounge is smaller feeling but we never had issues with crowds either. Breakfast time was the busiest time there. With both our stays, our room was steps away from the lounge so we frequently ate breakfast on our balcony overlooking the wedding gazebo.

BC CL was nice, staff was nice, food was plentiful but it was still my least favorite CL of the 3. We just REALLY like the "dark side" better

HTH!
